In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

GMO Nonsense

Regardless of religious beliefs, professional knowledge, and whatever you're told, all food is genetically modified. That's a fact, and that can't be changed.

Scientifically modified food is a different thing, although the constant attack on such things is usually a strong effort to line the pockets of those that can make money by placing "Non GMO" on their label.

So, although they don't use the the term "Non Scientist Modified" to explain food modified by modern scientific techniques, that's what they mean. Whe they don't use that explanation is beyond me, but I have the feeling political correctness, and typical obfuscation of facts is in play. Maybe it's because scientists, politicians, and mass marketers are not willing to confess their strong effort to mislead the general public. I can understand that, if enough people were more aware of the efforts of all three above, the bounty on all would be substantial, and filled daily.

Something to Think About

The boob tube had a show with windmills, and my wife commented on how she never realized how big they were. I told her of seeing miles of them during a trip to South Texas, and explained how they're basically a money pit, since they wouldn't exist, if our tax dollars weren't wasted on hucksters with the ability to influence the pool of ass clowns we call Congress.

She continued with the conversation and explained how she always found the phrase "save energy" odd. I agreed. After all, what are we saving it for? Tomorrow? Next week? A special Christmas event? We laughed about it, I thought more about it, and decided to write in my blog.

If the truth was known, the energy the government wastes would probably make those with the propensity to cry bawl for long periods of time. That, and how much is wasted on paying for what I call "criminal enterprises" funded by tax dollars.

So, what are we saving energy for? That's easy to answer: We're saving it so some criminal ass-wipe, with the help of the dumbasses we pay to run our government, can have another opportunity to steal our labor, and laugh all the way to the bank.

Laws and Legislation

I'm tired of the garbage created by courts, attorneys, and legislators who are attorneys. The tedious obfuscation created by court documents removes the expeditious reason for good laws. Otherwise, legislation from the bench not only causes harm, it removes the checks, and balances, demanded by the Constitution.

What's the solution? Removing the ability of attorneys from serving in the legislative branch of any government entity for a period of five years after surrendering their license to practice law. That, and the penalty of jail time, fines, and forever unable to practice law by anyone that doesn't follow this rule.

Attorneys are useful, but not nearly as necessary as they think they are. Obfuscation, corruption, and ridiculous methods to address the courts, and to write effective legislation,  made the profession as seedy as that of unethical used car sales people. We have too many, and they need to be culled.

The Airline Rep Goes To the Fast Food Restaurant

AR: "I want a large hamburger, with fries, and a medium drink.

Clerk: "That will be $7.45"

After giving change, the clerk hands the rep a small cup,

AR:  "I paid for a medium drink"

Clerk: " I know, but we gave another customer your cup."

AR:  "That's not right."

Clerk: "I'm sorry, but that's all the cups we had, and the other customers ordered medium drinks, so we gave them your cup. That, and we're out of large buns, so we're giving you a small bun"

AR: "Look, I paid a large hamburger, and a medium drink. If you didn't have either, you shouldn't have taken my money as though you did."

Clerk:  "'I'm sorry, but we never know exactly how many people will order large hamburgers, with medium drinks, so to handle the problem, we sell too many, even though we don't have the items."

AR: "That makes no sense at all."

Clerk: "If you think that doesn't make sense, you should try booking a flight on an airline."

How to Solve the Argument

According to some scientists, human influenced global warming is happening, we should spend trillions to slow the process, and if we don't, we will all die.

Other scientists, skeptical of the theory, found evidence of data manipulation; if they could get the data used by the scientists that claim AGW.

I think there's only one way to solve this problem. Scientists need to put their lives on the line. Those that say there is definite proof, should show us the proof, and if it's not true, they have to jump into a tank of 33 deg. Fahrenheit tub of water, and remain for thirty minutes. If they can be revived, they will never again be eligible for funding from any source for research.

Of course, those that corrupted data, and used that data to support their theory can always just say they were wrong, and all will be good....after they spend 10 minutes in 33 deg. Fahrenheit water on live television.

After it's all settled, and it's proved wrong, Al Gore, and all of his sycophants, will be rounded up, and dropped into an active volcano.
